    We are planning to release the Stradivari Solo Violin this spring. Hopefully around Musicmesse or shortly thereafter.

    Which reminds me that I need to be the 50,000th post. That'll be the only way I get this or the Jazz library. Man, I'm one broke son of a gun.

    A few days ago Gary posted this little demo, highlighting some aspects of real time playing (no editing), with legato & portamento, and some timbrical characteristics of the new instrument. Perhaps it was buried in a long thread.

    Giorgio,

    I don't think we have ever heard how difficult data collection and sample correlation might be in your process. A few questions:

    1) Now that you have the base technology in place, how hard is it to create a new model? In other words, when handed a new physical instrument, how long does it take to sample all the sounds you need to analyze and align?

    2) Can you apply what you've learned to any bowed string instrument? For example, how much of a jump is it to capture the physics of a double bass? And how much of a stretch will it be to start to model winds and brass? (tonguing, reed clicks, etc)

    3) Eventually, could a Strad model be morphed against a model of another violin maker? Such as to capture a "genetic child" of a Strad and a Guarn?

    4) How much of the process is dedicated to modelling the original player himself? I can only imagine the same Strad may sound different in two player's hands (vibrato, bowing, gliss)!

    I also understand if you can't yet reveal this information due to secrecy!

    Incidentally, I think the Strad in this demo, when playing portamento in the low ranges, can start to approximate a Chinese erhu instrument, which is very exciting to me!
